Substitute Teacher Information

PUSD is a part of the Yavapai County Substitute Consolidation. The district contracts with Educational Services, Inc. (ESI) to provide substitute teachers—an agreement designed to increase the number of trained professionals working with our students, as well as fill opportunities and efficiency.

The Absence Management Program is overseen by the Yavapai County Education Service Agency (YCESA) and anchored at the County Superintendent’s Office, which is the point of contact for the 13 consolidated districts and the substitutes contracted to provide absence fills within those districts.
